New from Urban Decay...

I was lucky enough to be sent a selection of the new spring releases from Urban Decay a few weeks ago and thought I'd share my favourite peices with you.

The first products, and the ones that I was most excited about are the 24/7 Glide on Shadow Pencils (£14). The 'next generation' of the famous 24/7 eye liner pencils, Urban Decay claim that these are waterproof, creaseless and easy to apply.

l-r: Rehab, Sin, Morphine

I'm not normally a fan of 'fat' pencil products (I find you have to sharpen them far too much!) but I was seriously impressed with these. The colour payoff is incredible and they are super smooth and creamy to apply. Like the original 24/7 liners, they are blendable for about 30 seconds before setting, becoming waterproof and nearly impossible to smudge or blend. These are ideal as a base for powder shadows or on their own.


My favourite of the 12 shades would have to be 'Sin' a wearable champagne colour that I have been using on a daily basis. This looks great paired with 'Rehab' and blended using a stiff pencil brush (UD actually brought one out specifically for these pencils, imaginatively dubbed the '24/7 Shadow Pencil Blending Brush'!)


Another product that I am especially impressed with is the UrbanGlow Cream Highlighter, also in 'Sin'.


This creme highlighter is almost liquid in texture when you apply it, highly pigmented and leaves a gorgeous sheen to the skin.


The packaging is also a winner in my book: Urban Decay's signature deep purple casing with a decorative gold skull design.


The final new release worth a mention is the SuperCurl curling mascara (£15). I never normally notice the effect of 'curling' mascaras but this one really blew me away. If you struggle with straight or short lashes, this could do wonders!


As for skippable products from the collection? I wasn't overly taken with the AfterGlow Glide On Cheek Tints (Nice, but not amazing. I was slightly disappointed by the colour pay off) or the Lip Junkie lip glosses (The packaging is just somewhat awkward, the lid being too heavy and bulky for the tube)

All of the new release from Urban Decay will be available from 1st March in Debenhams and House of Fraser stores nationwide and online.

Anything you like the look of?

  1. I have always been a huge fan of Urban Decay, they don't test on animals and I find their products are always amazing! I'm excited about the new mascara having found the Big Fatty Mascara by Urban Decay which is now a staple in my daily makeup!! It's worked wonders for volume and length xx

  4. Your lashes look gorgeous with the mascara, but then again yoru lashes always do seem quite long so it might not look as good on me.
    The colours Sin and Rehab are to die for, exactly the kind of shades I like to wear. If the quality is as good as you say, I'll def be picking those up. :)

  5. Wow! Those UD shadow pencils look great! I imagine the Sin shade to be the same as the primer potion. It looks a nice colour.

  13. How would you compare the Sin products you mentioned to the shadow in the Naked Palette, Fleur? Are the colours identical?

    Can't wait to check them out myself in any case, especially the highlighter. You're so lucky to be able to use them already!

  21. Thanks for sharing photos and your review! Can't wait to check out the 24/7 shadow pencils at my local Sephora. I am a huge fan of the 24/7 liner. Actually, I just did a review of them recently because I liked them so much.

    Urban Decay makes the best packaging but I love that the quality doesn't end there. :)
